A polytechnic rector suspended for installing bed in his office in Nigeria after news broke out that he acquired and fixed a sophisticated relaxation bed in his office.
Mr John Adekolawole was on Monday suspended by the management of the Federal Polytechnic in Ede, Osun State following series of reports that the rector turned his office into a home.
The rector was then said to have diverted working hours to sleeping hours.
A member of the management board and Chairman, Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, the institution’s chapter, Mr Adekunle Masopa while speaking on the incident noted that the board based its strict decision on 21 grounds, which include sleeping during office hour.
Masopa, who spoke after the Union’s Emergency Congress, revealed that a position paper had been handed to ASUP by the Board shortly after its meeting.
He said the board accused Adekolawole of devoting the respected office of the rector to the creation of a bedroom furnished with a king-size bed, which made it possible for him to “sleep at work.”
